I look forward to working with you and your child for the 2016-2017 school year at Gadsden Elementary School. I have high hopes and great expectations for a happy and successful year for all students!
As part of the total school program, guidance and counseling services are offered. The guidance and counseling program stresses academic achievement, decision making, and personal/social development. This proactive and developmental program emphasizes the early development of a healthy self-concept and a respect for the feelings of others in an effort to prevent more serious problems in later school years.
Classroom guidance will be conducted in every classroom covering topics such as self-concept, getting along with others, accepting responsibility, study skills and decision making. A list of topics to be taught in the classroom will be sent home monthly. I will also be available to provide individual and group counseling to students on an as needed basis.
I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the total school program at Gadsden Elementary. If you would like more information about our counseling services and procedures, please feel free to contact me at (803) 353-2231.
It is our goal to make each day the best possible for your child at Gadsden Elementary!
